Jin Mao Tower, China

From series “The Highest Buildings in the World”
Year: 1998. Height: 421 m.

Jin Mao Tower deserves special attention among modern architectural symbols of Shanghai. The building is 421 meters high. Skyscraper construction was completed in 1998; it owes its spectacular appearance to the strict observance of proportions. In Asian culture, the number 8 is a symbol of prosperity and harmony, and this ‘magic’ number was laid in the heart of proportional calculations of the construction.

Jin Mao Tower, China The skyscraper has 88 floors and is built on a frame that has the shape of an octagonal star. The building is supported by 8 columns, and each of its floors is divided into 16 segments. Date of opening of the skyscraper - August 28, 1998 – was also chosen intentionally. Travelers have particular interest to Jin Mao Tower as its last 38 floors are occupied by the luxury hotel Grand Hyatt that is one of the best in Shanghai. There is a magnificent lookout at an altitude of 340 meters; visitors of the skyscraper also can diversify their leisure with various shops and restaurants.

Speaking about features of Jin Mao Tower, it’s certainly worth to note its high durability. The building was designed with local climate in mind, so it can withstand hurricane winds at 200 m/s, as well as earthquakes and other natural disasters. A panoramic lift that can reach speeds of more than 9 m/s and can raise visitors to the observation deck of a skyscraper in just 45 seconds will provide colorful impressions.
